Question:

How does the poet imagine her to be, after death? Does he think of her as a person living in a very happy state (a ‘heaven’)? Or does he see her now as a part of nature? In which lines of the poem do you find your answer?

Answer:

The poet imagines her to be an inseparable part of nature. No, he does not think that she is in heaven because ‘heaven’ is not a dead thing. He believes that she has become a part of the nature. It is shown in the line ‘Rolled round in earth’s diurnal course/With rocks and stones and trees’.
